When it didn't pop on the 3rd or 4th pump, I was thinking the worse. But it finally did pop.
I think ccrider was referring to having to press the deflation button again.
When I deflate, I press the deflate button until I feel a click. The click is apparently the deflate valve switching from locked in the "keep the erection" position to locked in the "deflate mode" position. The click is very subtle/faint and easy to miss. If I press the button partway,
I can deflate without the click, but when I release the deflate button, the deflation stops because the valve is not locked in "deflate mode" and stays in "keep the erection mode". I suspect that there is a middle position where the valve allows deflation but did not flop over - no click. In this position, getting the "flop-click" from deflate mode to inflate mode may not be possible until you press the deflate button completely
So, the upshot is; If you cannot inflate for any reason, press the deflate button deeply and try to inflate again. Repeat those steps until it works. If that does not work, call the AMS representative (or post on this forum) for advice.
This advice is intended for AMS valves. I cannot attest to Coloplast valves, but imagine that some similar cycle might work.
